All & Everything 2019
24th International Humanities Conference
Kendal, United Kingdom
Wednesday, April 3 through Sunday, April 7, 2019
A gathering of the Companions of the Book by G.I. Gurdjieff: All and Everything: Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson (1950 edition), Meetings with Remarkable Men and Life Is Real Only Then, When “I Am”.
“With that aim he began inquiring among his friends and acquaintances to try to find out from them how they sensed it all and how they cognized their past and present perceptions and manifestations, doing this, of course, very discreetly, so as not to touch the aforementioned impulses inherent in them, namely, ‘self-love,’ ‘pride,’ and so on, which are unbecoming to three-brained beings.
Beelzebub’s Tales To His Grandson, p. 296
The All and Everything International Humanities Conference is a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent studies associated with the writings and work of G.I. Gurdjieff.
The A&E Conference series was initiated from the wish to “try and fathom the gist” of Gurdjieff’s writings as advised by the author. The conference provides a common ground for those who wish to explore these teachings with the hope that, by sharing our questions, insights and even half-baked notions in a neutral and congenial atmosphere, a wider horizon of understanding and practical incorporation will appear.
